Report: Microsoft To Release ‘Halo: The Master Chief Collection’ For Xbox One This Year

Engadget today reported that Microsoft is working on bringing ‘Halo: The Master Chief Collection’ for Xbox One which will be released later this year. This Halo collection is expected to include Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3 and Halo 4 and are being collected in a Master Chief-focused HD remaster coming from Microsoft. Engadget also reports that Halo: Reach and Halo 3: ODST  won’t be part of this collection.

Our sources say that the set will zero in on Halo‘s most famous soldier to refresh audience’s memories ahead of Halo 5: Guardians‘ release, so curiosities like Halo 3: ODST and Halo: Reach likely won’t be a part of the package. The game’s developer is unknown at this point, but considering that Saber Interactive handled Combat Evolved Anniversary and is also working on an unannounced Xbox One project, the team is a likely suspect. Also unclear are plans for digital distribution, resolution and frame-rate (Microsoft bragged that that the next Halo will run at a “blistering” 60fps), piecemeal releases, or if the games will surface on other platforms as well (PC, anyone?).

    I will probably buy this when the Xbox One is finally released in my country (maybe in September) if Microsoft has got all their shit together by then. They have undone almost everything they told us about one year ago when they unveiled it. I honestly liked Kinect and DRM if it made the games get a bit cheaper, since I never sold or bought a used game. Let’s see what happens to the XBox One until September.
    I’ve a PS2 and a PS3, so I never played Halo but everyone says it’s amazing and would be able to sell the Xbox by itself so I want to try it. But I would need to start from the first in order to understand everything. Buying a Xbox and a Xbox 360 right now is completely out of question so a pack with Halo, Halo 2, Halo 3 and Halo 4 for the Xbox One would be a dream come true!
